Ready willing and able to meet the world.

Do you guys always fly in private jets? And, of course I'm not jealous or anything.

Oh, look at her with her sweatshirt on! It will be wonderful for her. She will love love love it there! Just let me know when we can all go down there and stay in the little log cabin outside of town. It will be fun.

Agree...she is bursting with excitement and pride. You have many reasons to be so very proud of her :)

Hey, what IS up with the private jet? Ya'll have fun and remember...gulp, gulp, gulp. Oh hell, she'll be crying so go ahead. You will both be fine. Bird maybe a little more fine than Mama Bird :)

Snooty Primadona said...

Tough times for Mama... Try your best not to cry. Well, until she's out of hearing reach anyway. I swear it's like the day you left them at Kindergarten. Only worse & better. I'm a lot of help, huh?

Mango Girl said...

A new and exciting adventure for Bird! Steady wings because of Mama; we all know she taught her babies to fly right!

WOWWWWW!

Daryl said...

LOVE those pix ... now we need one where you hug her and she pushes you in a gentle loving but firm way to the door .. ((((MPM))))

Trisha said...

Can you blame her for being excited? Such an exciting new chapter in her life! You are handling it well!

noble pig said...

Her whole life is ahead of her and you have been the driving force of her dreams. You have done well, time for her to use what she learned. Revel in that behind the tears.

Congrats to you, mama.

Way to go mom! This is what it is all about, a successful launch from the nest. Fly little birdie!

Safe flight fledgling!

Ann Marie said...

Proof positive that you did your job just right.

It's still a sigh-evoker though.

Great pics!

...Love the photos - they are adorable together! :o)

...Sending {{{{hugs}}}} your way MPM and blessings to you and your family too...

Lisa said...

I left mine in the dorm today. It's being back home that's weird. It's way harder than I imagined. But yes, we taught them to fly. And now we can watch them soar!

Keetha said...

Oh, my. This one got to me. She'll do great, I just know it.
